Laser laryngeal microsurgery is currently the primary method of treatment of various laryngeal diseases. The development of laryngeal microsurgery came from the introduction of a small spot $CO_2$ laser micromanipulator and more precise microlaryngeal instruments. $CO_2$ laser laryngeal microsurgery has enabled very precise surgery because it has small focus size and hemostatic effect. There are some limitations to the use of the $CO_2$ Laser such as adjacent tissue damage and vocal fold scarring. These problems can be minimized through understanding the mechanisms by which lasers function and correctly manipulating the parameters under a surgeon's control. We should also recognize the safety of $CO_2$ laser for the surgeon to precisely perform the procedure.
